Urban Planet: Energy Use Mapping

Urban Planet is a daily roundup of  blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

Inhabitat profiles the work of Columbia University engineering students who mapped the energy usage of buildings in NYC. It’s hoped that the mapping project will allow planners to more effectively design and implement energy saving plans.
